UPDATE: Some good news after a man went missing in Surrey just after 5:30 pm yesterday.
63-year-old Jaswinder Singh was found in the 6:00 hour this morning.
Surrey RCMP say aside from being hungry when he was first found, he’s doing fine.
He’s been taken to local hospital for a routine check-up.
RCMP and the Search and Rescue Team in Surrey are looking for a 63-year-old man who has disappeared.
Jaswinder Singh was last seen at 5:30 Thursday afternoon, when his health caretaker dropped him off at the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple, where he usually spends an hour, and then meets with his caretaker across the street at the Chapters location on 120th Street.
That never happened and the Chapters parking lot in the 7300-block of 120th Street is now the staging area for the search.
Staff Sergeant Dale Carr says about a half dozen Mounties are out looking as well as Search and Rescue.
“In that area, there are a number of soccer fields and parks. I believe we are going to make our way to Bear Creek Park, it’s often frequented by elderly South Asian males just for gatherings”.
Carr adds it’s a serious matter because Singh has a previous brain injury that has left him with the mental capacity of a 10 to 12-year-old.
“The weather gets pretty cool in the evening, in the wee hours of the morning now. He’s not really dressed for the weather that we are experiencing at this time of year, so we’re concerned.”
He has a distinctive walk and drags his left leg.
He was last seen wearing a grey jacket over a dark sweater and dark-coloured jogging pants.
